Hopefully Glover Teixeira has good dental insurance, because he's really going to need it.

Teixeira was knocked out by Anthony "Rumble" Johnson this weekend at UFC 202, just 13 seconds into the first round. But in that short window Teixeira suffered a brutal uppercut that sent a tooth flying from his mouth and into the air.

Teixeira was so stunned by the strike that when he came to he tried to take the referee down, not knowing the fight had been stopped.

The victor of the fight was expected to get the next shot at Daniel Cormier and the light heavyweight title, but Teixeira's title shot dreams were dashed when Johnson cashed in on his heavy hands and dropped him in stunning fashion.

Johnson will continue on to face Cormier at a fight card to be determined.
